Musée Magazine: Ritual







































Thank you Musée Magazine for including my work in your current issue.

Alovebigas Magazine






































I am starting a high-quality quarterly magazine devoted purely to 'film as
canvas' -- photographers who use film experimentally, as a medium in itself
rather than in the narrative sense of recording the external world. Chemicals,
decay; how film can be manipulated in non-digital ways. This is what we'll be
featuring. Do get in touch via my website if you'd like more information.

The Literate Lens























"... the notebooks of Robin Cracknell and Saul Leiter are delicate and lovely, works of art in their own right. Cracknell’s images of his son, combined with diagrams and words, reveal a father’s struggle to navigate a difficult divorce."

Very flattered to be mentioned in this generous review of 'Photographers' Sketchbooks'. Thank you for these kind words.

Dor






































Dor, in Romanian, is the feeling of longing or craving someone or some place in one's memory or an entire metamorphosis of body and soul for the one experiencing it. I've also heard that dor, in Hindi, means string, yarn or thread which neatly fits the idea of being pulled, bound, captured by this same feeling, the tug of love and memory, those connecting ties that bind.

low mass stars (2014) dust, fungus, glass, x-ray, diagrams ...

The Boxer




My friend and frequent collaborateur, Timothy Shepard, produces distinctive pieces of music from randomly found fragments of vinyl and old 78's. This piece, 'The Boxer', inspired me to produce a 'narrative' of photographs about wounds, faith, self-loathing, love, fear ... It's only 2 minutes long, do listen if you can.

Photographers' Sketchbooks




























This lovely book launched last night at the Photographer's Gallery. Editor Stephen McLaren spoke, along with some of the contributors. I kept quiet in the back but I'm so honoured to be part of such an important, essential publication about photographers' thought processes. I believe it sold out last night but, obviously, more will be available.

womb






































It's interesting sometimes how pictures disseminate into unlikely places; Sometimes gallery walls, sometimes obscure medical theses -- as in this case. To me, all have their merits and I particularly like how this has turned out. Thank you, Julienne, for sending me this.
